    LMAO. I think I should go shoot up a mall and say the news made me do it. One of my biggest influences was President Bush.

    Its a stupid cycle that will always repeat itself. I personally am waiting for them to combind some of these.

    "Today, a boy went on a shooting spree killing 20. When asked what made him do it he replied 'It was the music inside the games that made me do it'. So there you have it, video game music is to blame."

    Here's the article: http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/351/living/Some_say_you_d_better_watch_out_for_violent_games+ .shtml
    This guy seems just like any other media personality. print anything to make a buck weither it kills the enjoyment to others or not.

    Plainly, these were two warped kids. But what warped them? Once apprehended, the youngsters insisted they didn't mean to really kill anyone but simply wanted to emulate their favorite computer game, the notoriously violent Grand Theft Auto.
    It is just like the Snipers in washington saying that video games made them do it. Violence is a way of our lives. But it is not the cause of what happens in the world. Look at Japan, most of the most perverted, and violent movies/games/comics come directely from there and they aint running out to highways to shoot people and blame it on a game. Back when I was a kid it was the music we listened to. Now it is everything around us. hmmm maybe it is just the media itself. This country believe it or not was built on violance. Where you sit right now once had blood spilt on the ground I am sure.




    Next people will say that the dog talks to them. Oh wait mine talks to me. God, see we have nothing else to blame now. AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG

    I like this last paragraph

    A sensible move, but it may not matter. Lowenstein said 83 percent of the games played by children, including the ugliest titles, are bought for them by adults. ''There is no law that man has devised,'' he said, ''that can mandate responsible parenting.''

    My only issue (and one I didn't think of till I read the thread in the ng) is that this isn't anything new. It's going to be the same old recycled article printed by the next guy. I am not sure if I am going to participate allthough I think I am exactly what he is looking for.
    I've never read an article that discussed families that play violent video games together... I'm actually really looking forward to his article...

    Umm, go for what? I was just letting people know about this guy that's doing a story on gaming families... If you want to contribute to the story, get in touch with Mr. Bray.

    I was really thinking of Phylis/Q, eternal/rooster, and Diablo/PhantomLord... (I'm probably forgetting some people....)
